of kim jong un, the north korean leader, peering through field glasses and threatening to annihilate a small south korean island this is that island. it's about ten miles from the north korean mainland. in fact, kim was standing just over there on that small island when he made those threats. this place is home to 5,000 civilians. and a lot of soldiers. now, you would have thought that they would have got used to threats from the north. but even here, they've been alarmed by the frequency and the intensity of the threats that have come from pyongyang. now, the latest of course, was kim saying he was readying north korean missiles to attack u.s. bases. and today there was a mass rally in the center of pyongyang, screaming death to imperialists. and of course, supporting kim jong un. analysts believe an attack on u.s. bases is not that likely. that north korea simply doesn't have the capability. more likely is some sort of limited clash here in the west sea, that's happened before. the people on this island are only too aware of that. andr andrea? >> ian williams thanks to you on the f

of those hot lines they have to south korea? >> that's right. over the years, north korea under kim jong-un and before him, his father kim jong-il have made threats like this before, but there's growing concern among some, because of the unpredictability of this new leader, the son of kim jong-il, they consider him to be extremely dangerous, and they're taking a very close look at this. they're so concerned that just last week the u.s. and the south korean government signed a new military agreement that in the event of any kind of attack by north korea, that the two allies, the u.s. and south korea could work together in a possible counter attack. so people are taking this very seriously. they see no imminent threat. they see no indications from the south koreans that they are actually preparing to stage any attacks, but nevertheless everybody is taking this threat seriously and they're on a high aall right of watch, at least. jim mickle shells can i from the pentagon, we appreciate it. thank you so much. >> okay, luke. >>> there was a jobs for our heroes job fair today, an effort to help v

jong un a great friend, his best friend, a nice guy? doesn't that undercut pressure from the west? >> you know what, dennis rodman was a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he was a great basketball player. that's where we'll leave it. >> as a diplomat, you have been a senator for decades. you have been your own boss. what's it like to coordinate and as some have suggested in the past regarding secretary clinton, take instructions on foreign policy from people in the white house who, frankly, don't have as much experience as you. this was a problem with your predecessor. >> i think -- there's lots of experience in the white house. please don't diminish that, number one. number two, i'm delight to work for this president, with the president and his advisors. it's a great team. the president has a terrific vision. that's what i came over here to try to reinforce is to really cement a community of action around common values, common economic interests, common security interests, and in europe, we did that, and in rome we made it clear how we would join together with respect t

to north korea and satisfying the leaders kim jong un's love of basketball and does this help prop him up to have prominent americans, and there have been others, to go to north korea and show friendship with the regime? >> well, first of all, andrea, you have overstated my basketball skills, so i want to set the record straight on that. >> no. you are an athlete. we know that. >> but clearly, i thought secretary kerry put it best when he said that dennis rodman has been a great basketball player, and as a diplomat, he is a great basketball player. >> at the same time would your warning be to other americans not to show signs of friendship to this regime at a time when they are, in fact, threatening to break the armistice, the 1953 armistice with the south? it's maintained for all of these decades. >> the north has made a number of threats and taken a lot of provocative actions, which we think are condemnable and aren't getting it anywhere, and, frankly, i think the north needs to understand that as long as it persists in this approximate behavior that, the sort of friendship that it want

to pyongyang. i was there on that trip, october 2000. what a trip it was. this was kim jong-un's father, predecessor. this was as time of great hope. >> i think we got quite far on that trip. we were in the middle of negotiations, and then the clinton administration left office. i am sad to say that the bush administration didn't pick up the hand of cards that we left on the table there. >> in fact, in talking to president clinton years later, he said he had two choices at the end of his term. one was to pick up on yasser arafat's officer to come to camp david and make a deal. that was december, and also of course to follow up on your initiative, to go to north korea and even normalize relationships, and there are real down risks. >> and it was a very confusing election, actually. there was a lot of confusion. >> what we see is a -- he's 28 years old, trying to impress the military. it's a show of force, but when i talk to top national security officials right now, they say they don't know if there could be an accident, a miscalculation, in cancelling the armistice, and it's always tens

. the north korean leader, kim jong un went even beyond what he had done before in using sexist, demeaning, colloquial language about the first female president of south korea who was just inaugurated. he seems to want to spark controversy there. and hamid karzai, the constellation of problems that the president faces in foreign policy. afghanistan, a huge problem with karzai behaving in such a way that it's going to inflame congress, if not the white house. it's awfully hard to keep saying well he's got domestic political problems. he is the -- he's the leader we have to deal with. but it's not going well. >> all of this is an illustration of it feels like it's particularly second-term issues with presidents. it's always something and no matter how much they want to sort of set out an agenda of the things that they want to finish up with their the world has this nasty tendency to intrude. and there were so many different multiple possibilities for headaches, all of which we're talking about. >> just the very fact that he is leaving for this trip is still going to get a lot of attention. a
